SEE-IT Study newsletter privacy notice
The main aim of the SEE-IT Study (Emergency Medical Services Streaming Enabled Evaluation In Trauma) is to assess the feasibility of implementing and evaluating live streaming from 999 calls in a definitive randomised controlled trial. Ultimately, we want to see if live streaming helps ambulance dispatchers to make quicker decisions about the help that is required at traumas incidents. For more information you can contact Dr Lucie Ollis at firstname.lastname@example.org or Professor Cath Taylor at email@example.com.
